What is Neck Lift?
Before & After
Benefits of Neck Lift
Long-lasting, Rejuvenated Contours
Removal of Wrinkles and Creases
Elimination of Fat Deposits
Enhanced Self-Esteem and Youthful Appearance
The neck lift surgery is performed in our surgical facility, allowing for a controlled and personalized environment. One unique aspect of our neck lift techniques is the usage of deep sedation instead of general anesthesia. Deep sedation induces a state of relaxation without putting the patient entirely under, allowing them to breathe independently.
A neck lift removes hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will be used during the surgery and performed first. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tightness, and suture the incision.
Candidates for a Neck Lift
While a neck lift can provide transformative results, it’s only suitable for some. Here are the typical candidates for a neck lift:
